Fantastic talk! 😀
Really? That is funny to you? Are you sure you are qualified to judge
Yep, still pretty funny.
4:05 to skip to the main event. You are welcome! 🙂
This is a 70-minute lecture on the effects of stress on humans, from the
cellular, through the individual, to the social level. This is as close to
a holistic approach to stress as anything I’ve ever seen.
Thanks to Mary Ching for sharing this.
Stress and Health: From Molecules to Societies
Excellent, though he talks quickly.
Great lecture, but the CC is very distracting in it’s deficiency. That
said, follow it for some hilarity.
if Sapolsky was a girl I’d make sure she carries my babies ! just saying !
CC said “Richard Sapolsky…” WRONG, “Robert!”
“Thank you, Robert, that was just suburb!” It really is superb. I have
listened to many hours of his talks, and every new one is a fresh big treat.
WTF. wow. speechless at this lecture. mind blowing stuff. this man clearly
knows his shit, not that i know his shit, as it is totally over my head,
but im giving him the benefit of the doubt that he has “read a few
books”(to say the least) in his time about this subject. regardless its
absolutely very interesting(also dam boring). but good on you sapolsky ,
keep up the good work.
1 What is your evidence for having had liver failure? clay colored stool,
dark brown urine-did not go to the Dr, incapacitated for 36 hours. no alc
or drugs. No food intake…some water but, tap horrid, hence soda. I was
later diagnosed with cirrhosis-low platelet count and edema. 15 yrs after
any alc consumption Edema-spironolactone Side Effects~Gynecomastia is
enlargement of the glandular tissue of the male breast. Which should be
discontinued @ such signs, Dr. breezed by my complaints.
My point; Monsanto profits, has the upper hand on any info disclosed. As
does the vaccine distributors, why I mentioned-NEW anthrax testing “A
presidential ethics panel has opened the door to testing an anthrax vaccine
on children as young as infants”Ruters….recent article/action-rational? I
think not. No, no I wish you would chk Pub Med, I seriously see hundreds or
thousands~many with w/negative slant. Access to info w/o subscription-did
not look close. Time spent on puter-I should have.
Aspartame being the end product, In 1984 Monsanto purchased Searl chemical
company, they held patent to aspartame. The FDA banned the substance, yet
was a turned around. Company head Donald Rumsfeld….this is what I am
saying, that is just too weird. And Monsanto has always been liked to the
defense dept making chemical weapons? Now in charge of food supply. I
certainly am not a anti capitalist type, monopoly fears perhaps-hampering
free markets. But mainly, all the affiliation with FDA.
I was away from home, rare do I drink anything but, water or tea. Stevia
yes. Powder added as mostly rolled oat, protein powder. Which I have not
chk GI of? hmmm. And yes, barley, brown rice & various-cereal and more of a
pilaf with veg/fish/chicken or beans. Bulk of diet. Looking for a good
source of red meat, store quality has dropped. List: Elk and/or beef friend
w/farm and hunts. Farm raised chicken becoming hard to find. aarrgg
Question-rolled oats/barly vs whole grains? GI
Gabor Maté is great too
Anyone have suggestions for good herbs/supplements/etc for stress?
Few Westernized humans are likely to die of scarlet fever, malaria or
malnutrition. Instead, we live well enough and long enough to succumb to
the diseases of slow degeneration. It is increasingly recognized that a
large percentage of such diseases can be caused by or worsened by stress.
This lecture approaches the subject of stress and health from two very
Very well done thank you some much for posting this.
Great lecture, but I feel sorry for the closed captioner.
Unhealthy stress is not only a killer, it can cause chronic long term
health problems on a life long basis, but an understanding of it can help
to reduce it to a safe level. For an understanding from a physics point of
view see –
